Band Pro is one of the world’s premiere distributors of cinema gear around the world. So we always try to make a point to see what they have in new gear, upcoming events and more. We spoke with Band Pro’s Randy Wedick for more on those very topics during our live stream of Cine Gear 2017.
The Angénieux Type EZ-1 Pack for S35mm/FF/VistaVision cameras is a standard zoom lens with a zoom factor of 3x. Its focal range and aperture are set to 30-90mm F1.9/T2. By exchanging the rear lens group, the lens becomes a 45-135mm F2.8/T3 for FF/VistaVision format covering an image circle up to 46mm diagonal.
Created to fill the wide gap between basic still photography zooms, and the highly acclaimed Optimo, Optimo Style family of lenses used in the motion pictures industry, the Angénieux Type EZ series features two new light weight zooms. Thanks to an innovative lens modular design (Interchangeable Rear Optics IRO technology™), both lenses allow the rear lens group to be exchanged between S35mm (up to 30mm image diagonal), and FF/VistaVision format (up to 46mm image diagonal).
For the first time, ENG-style productions will get the flexibility necessary for run-and-gun shooting, combined with an excellence of image quality at an affordable price. Users can also easily change between PL, Canon EF and Sony E mounts.
